Just follow the Energy Ball as it zooms across the screen and SMASH IT when it’s in the bullseye. You have to react fast because the levels speed up and the patterns get tricky!

Time it right and catch the light! Catch the Energy Ball in the bull’s-eye, for a perfect smash and earn even more points. See if you can get a perfect streak! But any catch is a good catch so stay alive and keep smashin;’ if you miss, make sure you have a power-up for a Do Over!

Capture the Energy Ball as soon as you can. That will power up your energy meter faster and eventually energize a Mega Ball! The Mega Ball gets you 2X points, and can be upgraded to 3X points and 3X coins too. While mega ball is active you’ll be raking it in!

Try to get the highest score and earn SMASH Cash along the way. The more cash you have, the more Power-ups, Upgrades, Background Views, Energy Balls and Smashers you can buy in the Store.

Use the intense bonus round to rack up big extra points. The more bonus Energy Balls you catch, the bigger your points and SMASH Cash.

SMASH your Game Center friends and get the highest score. Watch their names pop up as you zip past them on the leaderboard.

SMASH IT with your thumbs or smash the device with your hand – there’s no right way to do it – just SMASH IT!

What’s new

10 new Levels!
Earn SMASH Cash faster- when you complete a goal or reach the next Level
